The Hidden Court
While there are always men and women willing to take any job, including assassinations, for the right sum of money, there are a handful that seem to follow a sort of code. These lend credence to the belief that there is a unified assassin’s guild.
Most people who live in large cities or have any dealings with politics believe in some sort of assassin’s guild; sometimes referred to as “The Shadow Court”, “The Hidden Court” or simply, “The Court.”
The Hidden Court does indeed exist, though it is a pale shadow of what it was during it’s height. The Court has always maintained several safe-houses and meeting places across the Northern and Southern continents, but one location is always chosen to be the “Home Court” – the place where the leaders gather, where dues are collected and redistributed to pay for resources, and where the most lucrative job offers are sent. The Home Court moves about every 10 years or so to avoid trouble with the authorities.
